How to handle a Wedding Fair successfully? For the weeks leading up to the 17th of September, this was the question on my mind…
As a Wedding Celebrant, Wedding Fairs can definitely be an amazing opportunity to meet couples planning their big day. Most importantly, I can use Wedding Fairs to give out information on what a Celebrant Wedding can offer that a traditional wedding might not. For example, using a celebrant like me widens your venue options. You don’t have to use licenced premises and you don’t have to be indoors.
Also, with a Wedding Celebrant, you get a wedding ceremony written entirely for you. Therefore, no one else’s wedding day will be like yours. There are so many pros! You can read about them here https://www.momentsto.co.uk/wedding-celebrant/
However, my main concern in how to handle a wedding fair successfully was: what did I want to achieve? And this should be your main question too.
You will probably fall into one of three groups: Inspiration Seeking; Price Finding; Professional Securing.
You are probably in the very early stages of planning. You are full of Pinterest images and trying to pinpoint what it is you want from your ceremony. Therefore, you are here to collect ideas about what is possible.
Your aim is to be inspired.
Your success comes from developing a clear idea about your wedding day.
More than likely, you are a little further along the planning track. You know what you want. Now, you are looking into the practicalities of making it happen.
Your aim is to collect specific information. Facts and figures.
Your success comes from being able to create a detailed budget for your wedding day.
You know your wedding plan and you have worked out your budget. You’re now putting the finishing touches to your ceremony in order to make it as successful as possible. You are here to get the last of your professionals ticked off your vendor list.
Your aim is to get your professional signed up for your wedding day.
Your success comes from leaving with a smaller bank balance and a handful/email boxful of contracts saying YES to being at your day.
